Ice Ice Baby
For a short I am currently working on, I have been spending too much of my spare time investigating how to make Ice ‘Look nice’ and fit the theme of Evolution.
In this behind the scenes shoot, I have rigged up a simple set consisting of 1 L.E.D. video light and camera, intervalometer (to take snaps at whatever interval I choose), a cooker (to provide a small amount of heat), a black metal tray filled with a tiny bit of water (for a reflective surface) and of course the ice.
Surprisingly, my theory of the ice melting downwards worked, however being a little lop sided. If I play the video clip in reverse it does appear as if the ice is gradually seeping out of the water. The only problem is, the sequence I shot only lasts 15 or so seconds; which is wayyy too short.
I shall have to rethink the idea of heating the base or adjust how many pics I take.
